New deal for Wells

New deal for Wells

The future of Nahki Wells is no longer "uncertain" following the strikers signing of a new contract on Friday.

Wells gave Bradford a boost going into the weekend game, which unfortunately saw their unbeaten home record ended, by putting pen to paper on a new three-year contract.

The striker, as he told the official website, "always felt" a new contract would be signed and "always wanted to stay" so is glad this is the case: 'I always wanted to stay at Bradford. I felt this was something that was always going to happen, we just needed everything to be right for both parties.'

Phil Parkinson praised him and believes he will continue to improve, as he has over the past 12-months: 'We're really pleased. We want to keep our best young players and Nahki is certainly one of those. He is a talented player and his biggest attribute is his ability to finish with both feet. He is a cool finisher.

'He's made really good progress in the last 12 months and I'm confident he will keep improving as a player.'

The 22-year-old, the clubs topscorer this season with five so far, was due to be out of contract in the summer but the signing of this new contract now ties him to The Bantams until the summer of 2015, at least.

Bradford are now in "the driving seat" should other clubs continue to show an interest, the signing of this new contract means that the club will be in a better position to demand a greater fee should a firm interest ever be shown by others.
